A poor handicap with a handful of these looking to exploit a tumble down the weights. NO REFUND can race off a 10lb lower mark than when placed at Lingfield back in March and gets a token vote with an apprentice's allowance further helping her cause. Sewn Up and Bapak Muda are others back on a winning mark but Monte Cassino and Ishi Honest look in the handicapper's grip at present. Very First Blade went close last time and pops up when the mood takes him.
